Wilder Woods has been building a name for himself in the past few years, and now he has returned with the new taste of his upcoming album for Atlantic Records in the form of the new music video for “Someday Soon”. Check it out here!
Wilder Woods self-titled debut is a mystifying concoction of classic soul, infectious R&B, and modern alt pop that pairs intimate, introspective lyricism with a self-assured swagger and sophistication. Fueled by stop-you-in-your-tracks vocals, the album explores patience, forgiveness, and self-love in a world that’s woefully short on all three. From the funk infused Marvin Gaye beat down on the opening track, to the haunting ballads echoing the pain of a Michael Kiwanuka, Wilder Woods is a collection of tunes that are as introspective as they are carefree, and as weathered as they are hopeful.
Of his eponymous debut, he says: “We live in a world that is quick to judge and slow to forgive. We’ve been told that wisdom comes from love and experience, but we can never really enjoy either without taking a risk and diving head first into the unknown. Wilder Woods is the story of my ongoing battle with those demons, and a reminder to my loved ones that it is ok to make mistakes.”
